Session 18 - Religion and Culture

This week at the Diva Girls meeting, a guest speaker was brought in to share her poetry with the girls. Her poem was on religious culture and racism. After she shared her poem, the girls had a little discussion on why religion and culture is so important in society. Some Divas had experiences with what it’s like to be an accepted part of society while many did not know what that experience was. They went around in a circle and then talked about what makes them feel accepted and how society views them. The Divas then had a little activity where they answered three questions. They were split into two groups and the questions were “What does it mean to be a Canadian Muslim girl?”, “What is the most positive thing about being a Canadian Muslim girl?” and “What do you wish people knew about Islam”

The Divas spent a lot of time on this activity sharing their thoughts on the questions and later presented their ideas to the rest of the group.

After the break, they watched a video on Muslim girls and how they were seen in society. They then had a discussion on the video and after circle rock, the session ended.
